Tree falls across road near high school, damages water main

EUGENE, Ore. - A tree fell Thursday and blocked Silver Lane near North Eugene High School.

The Eugene Water and Electric Board said the falling tree damaged a water main.

Crews are assessing the tree next to the one that fell to determine whether or not it too might come down. The public is asked to avoid the area.

Silver Lee was expected to be closed at Dalton Drive for a few hours Thursday night.
